Global ACI-ICAO Airport Management
Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP)


A Joint ACI-ICAO Professional Accreditation Programme

Airport management, as a profession, has been faced with growing pressure to establish ways and means of promoting its credibility and ensuring an appropriate degree of standardisation of related expertise globally. ACI and ICAO established a formal partnership to provide accessible, affordable and universally available specialised management training to the global airports community. This initiative gave birth to the Airport Management Professional Accreditation Programme (AMPAP).

Successful completion of the Programme leads to the issuance of the International Airport Professional (IAP) designation whose holders are recognised by ACI and ICAO as having achieved highly rigorous standards for expertise in the field of airport management.

IAP graduates who are willing to keep current on policies, standards, processes and challenges that face the industry will be eligible to have their efforts rewarded with the new IAP+ designation. Candidates will have to apply for accreditation by completing activities outlined in the guidelines.
